friend could use support

Hey,

I really need some help from someone who has recovered or has experience of eating disorder recovery.

My girlfriend has had an eating disorder for quite a few years, she started a recovery meal plan around the middle of Jan and has been sticking with it religiously up to and including now. She's starting to have concerns over how much weight she has gained over such a short period of time. I have numbers and figures if someone would PM me to help us out here?

She's just not feeling great at the moment and it would be really good if she could talk to someone who has been in a similar situation or at least knows what they're talking about,

Thanks.

Re: recovery support?

Hello superseal and welcome.

Please realize that there is also a psychological component to eating disorders,which accompanies the physical.

Is she currently seeing a therapist or at the very least considering it?
The body can go into a survival type mode for some time,in an effort to store calories.

There is also the option of seeing a nutritionist,who would be able to explain things in correlation with her medical history.

To be concerned is not out of the ordinary but if it begins to effect her mood,outlook and overall mannerisms,attention should be brought to this and soon.

Respectfully
Phoenix
